Even though it takes up most of our weeknights and most of our weekend, I just love watching my kids play sports. I love seeing them work with their team and, most of all, I love to watch them have fun.
Gabe’s team was thrilled to go undefeated this season after a rough fall season where I’m not sure they even won one game. Matthew’s team only lost one game…but they don’t really pay attention to that…they’re kindergarteners.
In our town, sports can get a little overly competitive. It makes me crazy. I want to take all of those crazy, obnoxious parents to one of Olivia’s games to see what it really should be like. Everyone cheers for everyone. The players have fun. They try their hardest and everyone smiles.
She is loving baseball this year and it’s really fun to watch. The last 3 years when she’s played, she’s been less than thrilled about it. This year she asks how much longer until her game. I think it has something to do with a certain 20-something boy that she has a major crush on…but maybe she’s just finally decided she likes it. Every week she says she’s going to hit a home run and thanks us for taking her. That’s my girl.
